Gayle’s Gable

In Polish history, they tell the story of a boy whose trumpet call was cut short by an invader’s arrow through his chest. Trumpeters honor him by playing the tune, the Heynal, unfinished as it was the day he died. Author Eric Kelly, inspired by this story, crafted The Trumpeter of Krakow. The novel transports the reader to medieval Poland and a world of villains, knights, and alchemists. A secret treasure must be kept safe from enemy hands. Can Joseph and his father get it to the king in time? Watch for the trumpeter’s story woven into Kelly’s Newbury Medal winner.
